The Mercy Alliance are ready to release the upcoming record, Some Kind of Beautiful Story, out September 9th. Filling the record is 9-phenomenal tracks that will hit you in the face with an explosion of sound. This album is ready to bring you into autumn with punchy guitars, alluring harmonies and dark yet appealing vocal tones. Right off the bat, opening song “Washington,” reminded me specifically of Matt Pond PA. The tone of voice, the lyrical choices, the instrumentation. They create their own sound and vibe, while drawing from a band that is very near and dear to my heart. Standout tracks on the album include “Angel of Mercy,” which include drop dead gorgeous vocals, and “I Can’t Do It,” which pull at your heartstrings with a hint of orchestration bringing up the rear. Closing piece “Drifting In,” is gorgeous on every level, bringing to close an album that will open the ears of many listeners. Singer and brainchild Joe Rathbone has a real talent inside of him, and to be honest, I can’t wait to hear what more he has to offer, as Some Kind of Beautiful Story, is perfection.
